A Cozy Morning in Vermont

Wooded Winter Landscape, c.1899

It is cozy and warm in my living room. I am sitting near my wood stove and just love being here. The snow outside is absolutely beautiful. I am excited with my plans for today.

I am going to do my favorite thing in the world.... clean and polish and shine my house. I will also do some school work with the children. I need to pick out a new book to start reading today. I have several review copies I need to work on. Hopefully I have a nice Christian novel somewhere. I would like to get lost in another world for a little while. It is relaxing and fun!

I have had so many wonderful blessings this week. Even during our hard times, I wake up each morning, eager to see what miracles the Lord brings into our lives. I am praising God for each little joy. Yesterday, I was happy with some cake. The day before that, I was given coupons for $8 off my next grocery trip! Just little things to take delight in, and praise God for.

We also found out that we are getting a brand new refrigerator for free. Not only that, but Nana and Grandpa (who live with us) will also get a new fridge for free! These are such amazing miracles that bring tears of joy to my eyes.

God is good and greatly to be praised.

Hope you have a wonderful day and that many miracles are sent your way!

I also love my wood stove. It does such an efficient job of heating, doesn't it? Last night I got up at midnight and added a few logs to it, and then my husband was up at 5:30 and able to get it going again from the coals. We keep a cast iron kettle on it to add moisture to the air. Sometimes I add a couple of drops of peppermint essential oil to it to make the air also smell so fresh. :)
